is qualitative research includes issues surrounding information technology (IT) and healthcare and how IT professionals work to ensure that adequate healthcare is given to everyone regardless of income and race. The financial decisions affecting hospital and clinic solvency are reviewed. The questions about rural healthcare and dilemmas faced by patients and physicians are addressed along with the tools and resources available to provide adequate healthcare are examined. In addition, issues related to Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) implementation and staff training within healthcare facilities are addressed. Exploring the effecs of IT in healthcare, research shows that technology is positively related to financial outcome not only for patients, but also for clinics and hospitals. Furthermore, it is proposed that expenditures should be increased for both technology and patient education.
